Exclamation Server Maintenance tomorrow - 10/16/2010

As many of you have painfully experienced, the loads have been extremely high for some time now, especially during the evening. Tomorrow we are going to start exploring options and strategies to bring these levels down prior to throwing new hardware at the problem. This will include re-installation of the database server's OS after migrating it to a temporary backup server. While this is going on PTO will be completely off-line.

I will try and post an update in this thread prior to us taking PTO offline.

David

Hi Jancy,

I'm not sure older posts and inactive accounts are a significant part of the problem but we'll find out. If for some reason they are I'd rather add additional equipment before removing old posts and accounts.. It would be hard to go back and sift through posts that may still be relevant and what is just idle chatter.. Either way, we're going to get the page load times / time-out's solved and hopefully get the site sped up to its maximum potential.

Thanks!
David

I don't know what your setup is but perhaps you might wanna consider adding an additional slave database server and maybe even a CDN?

I use two slave dedicated database servers, two web servers and a CDN for just a wordpress blog but my blog gets over 9,000 uniques a day...... I pay $39.95 a year for the CDN and it has over 30 PoP's worldwide and it alone reduces total resource usage in my web server cluster by like 25% and made page load time go from 4 seconds to 1 second......

I got so much stuff done yesterday it really was strange. My house is sparkling, I wrote a 4-page letter to boo, I cooked a whole roast chicken (with all the fixins), I did my grocery shopping, brought home-baked cookies to my neighbors, and changed around my bedroom. Of course, this was after FINALLY giving up trying to get on to PTO most of the afternoon. Yeah, I was in denial... and?

You know David, I never did have a problem with slow loading pages and the site was not down on the day you said it was going to be - at least for me - but NOW I'm having a HUGE problem with slow loading pages.

Any idea why?

The issues you have been experiencing are due to server errors which we have been working on to get fixed. You should now experience normal load times.
